The best stem color occurs on new growth, so prune hard in spring to ensure a good display the following winter. Branches may also be cut in winter for use in arrangements.
The distinctively puckered, glossy foliage is very thick, and has excellent leaf spot resistance. Compact growth and bright red winter stems add to this native shrub’s year-round appeal.
